Green Cloud Computing

General Information

Energy consumption accounts for a large portion of the operating cost of computing clouds. In an EPA report to congress, it was estimated that data centers in the cloud make up 3% of the total energy consumption in the U.S. in 2011. This massive energy consumption not only creates financial and environmental issues, but also poses limitations on system scalability and reliability. As cloud computing is considered to be the future of computing and more work will be moved to the clouds, improving its energy efficiency will be more pressing and important.

Topics of interest

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for researchers to exchange and disseminate new methodologies and techniques that improve the energy efficiency of cloud computing. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


The proceedings of this workshop will be published together with the proceedings of other IGCC '12 workshops by the IEEE Computer Society Press and the IEEE online library.
